Your privacy is important to us! Here at Awaken the Inner Light, LLC, we take privacy seriously.
Website Use: When you visit Awakentheinnerlight.com, your IP address is automatically logged and anonymized. This helps us understand how visitors use the website so we can improve your experience. No personally identifiable information is collected.
Service Use: In order to fulfill services requested such as Soul Blueprint Readings, Energy Healing, Coaching, or Mentoring, some personal information is required, which you provide upon request to receive the services you request. This information is used ONLY to deliver services and is never shared with any third party.
All conversations, energy work, mentoring, or coaching should at no time be regarded as legal, medical, financial, or psychological fact. Everything during any of the above listed encounters is subject to your own interpretation and judgment. Therefore, whatever you choose to do with the information, energy shifts, ideas, exercises, etc. that I facilitate or give, including any actions or inactions you take, is your own personal responsibility and your own personal choice.
Services are never to be construed or used as a substitute for any medical, psychological, legal, or other professional services requiring licensure or an overseeing board. I encourage you to seek advice from qualified experts in these fields as needed.
I reserve the right refuse services to certain people if I feel that our energies are not a good match, or I can see you are not ready for them. I reserve the right to do this at ANY time, no questions asked. If this occurs, you will receive a refund for any services not yet rendered and I will gladly refer you to another practitioner that may be a better fit for you, when possible.
Specific to Soul Blueprint & Profile: If for any reason, I am unable to access your Soul Record, a full refund will be given and you will be notified that we are unable to proceed with the reading and session.
Upon scheduling an appointment, you are responsible for noting it and setting any reminders. Appointments booked via my online calendar will automatically send you two reminders.
Tardiness: Life happens. If for any reason you are over 5 minutes late, the appointment is automatically subject to rescheduling. It is expected that you will message me ASAP should you be running late. I have text messaging, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp available for faster than email communication.
If I am running late, I will message you ASAP. If text, Facebook Messenger, or WhatsApp are unavailable to our communications (meaning I do not have permission to use those methods to message you, or you have none of them) I will send an email.
Life happens. We miscaculate how long an errand might take, or unexpected things arise. It’s LIFE. However…chronic tardiness or rescheduling will not be tolerated.
Ghosting, AKA, no show & no communication: This will immediately result in a ban, and no refund will be given.
Technology: All video sessions are via Zoom whenever possible. It is your responsibility to install Zoom and familiarize yourself with it. Should Zoom prove to be an issue, Facebook Messenger is the second option. Any and all phone calls that incur extra charges on your bill are your responsibility. I only make calls within the U.S. For those outside the U.S. who have an international plan, you calling me is an option, provided there are no extra charges incurred on my phone bill.
Cancellations: Cancellations 48 hours or more in advance automatically receive a full refund for services left not yet rendered. Any cancellations less 48 hours are subject to a $25 late cancellation fee, at my discretion.
Specific to Soul Blueprint & Profile Readings: Cancellations made less than 48 hours before a scheduled session for Soul Blueprint readings only receive up to a 50% refund. It takes time to prepare your Soul Blueprint & Profile, which is done before our scheduled session time.
Rescheduling: Again, life happens. Should you need to request to reschedule, you will receive communication with information about how to do so. There are no fees for reasonable rescheduling. If for any reason there is an issue on my end, I will reach out to you to reschedule ASAP. If for any reason you are late and we proceed with the appointment, beyond the scheduled end time is solely at my discretion. If for any reason I am late and we proceed with the session, you will receive the full time.
Payment: As all appointments are via video or phone, I accept PayPal. Single sessions booked online through the online calendar will prompt a payment request, except for the Cup O’. For packages such as Quantum Excavation or other offerings that require a conversation to get you started, you will receive an invoice as agreed upon. Paypal will invite you to set up an account if you do not already have one, but you are not required to have a Paypal account. You can use your credit or debit card without a Paypal account.
Payment Plans: Recurring invoicing will be set up for all payment plans. The payment date is noted on the invoice, and is expected to be paid by that date. Any invoices unpaid will render your services suspended until the invoice is paid.
***Chronic tardiness, rescheduling, or cancellations will result in refusal of services, and no refunds will be given.***

Applies to any and all appointments except a Cup O’ initial meeting.
Katie’s Status and Scope of Practice
Hello, my name is Katie Kieffer and I offer Soul Blueprint & Profile readings, energy healing, guidance, mentoring, and coaching. Utilizing the ThetaHealing® technique as the basis of all energy work facilitated in a session, we can access the subconscious mind to make changes that you want to make. NOTE: Your verbal permission is required, and Free Agency is completely honored.
I do not diagnose or treat disease, mental, emotional, or psychological issues. These sessions are not a substitute for diagnosis or treatment from a qualified health practitioner for illnesses, injuries, or other medical, psychological, or emotional conditions and are never to be construed as treatment or suggested treatment. My services are not licensed by the state of North Carolina and my practice is guided by the Energy Medicine Professional Association’s Code of Ethics. My practice is energetic and spiritual in approach and nature, utilizing focused prayer and belief in the Creator of All That Is to facilitate positive changes and experiences in life.
Energy Healing Session: A sacred space to use focused prayer to make positive changes in the subtle energies, beliefs, programmes, and conditioning held by an individual. These sessions inherently involve intuitive readings, meaning I tune into your energy, and receive information from the non-physical realms. These sessions also involve discussion and questioning to go deeper into the energy, bringing the unconscious to the conscious. Directly working with the subtle energies of one’s being, I ask the Creator to make changes in your energy, and you choose to allow, decline, or refine the request. Then I witness the shifts in the energy as the Unconditional Love of the All That Is makes the changes.
Soul Blueprint: The original structure and set up of your soul upon the first moments of being created by Creator itself.
Soul Profile: The currently active profile of the soul, accounting for choices made, experiences, vibration rate, etc.
Mentoring/Coaching: A sacred space where you can ask questions and receive answers. These answers may be from my personal experience and knowledge, intuitively received or some combination. In these sessions, I may recommend other resources such as different techniques and modalities, books, articles, videos, or whatever is most appropriate for you in the moment that you can use on your own to help yourself.
Description of a Session
Energy Healing Session: During a session (which can vary in length averaging one and a half hours), I will ask you for permission to connect with your energy and what it is you would like to work on, or change in your life. Then I connect with the Creator of the All That is, and intuitively scan your body and/or energy, auric field, and/or chakras. I may walk you through a meditation. I will ask you questions, “digging” through the subtle energies for issues that may be limiting you in some way, listening to both you and Creator closely with my physical and intuitive senses.
I may ask you to muscle test for particular beliefs/programmes as Creator shows me. Muscle testing, as is used in the ThetaHealing technique is solely for the purpose of confirming the existence or absence of the subtle energy of a belief or programme or feeling. After we have a thread of beliefs/programmes energy to work with, I may ask more questions as Creator shows me, or I may ask you if you would like to change those beliefs and programmes. I will ask you if you would like to receive the energy of a new belief or programme from Creator, and in order to receive it, your verbal consent is necessary, and I will ask you to give verbal consent for all changes. My job in a session is to ask you and Creator the right questions to address that which you want to address and witness Creator doing the actual work of the changes. Witnessing the changes and energy shifts may take only a moment or several minutes. We repeat this process until we come to a sense of completion for that session.
How a session is experienced varies with each individual. Some clients feel nothing at all. Others describe sensations of moving energy, deep relaxation, feelings of being supported and nurtured, or visions of images and colors. Some clients experience emotional release such as tears; some have what they consider to be a spiritual experience or they may develop insight into specific areas of their lives. The most common experience is “feeling lighter” by the end of a session. You are likely to feel quite relaxed during your session as we go into a theta brainwave.
Quantum Alignment Session: Quantum Alignment is based upon your Soul Blueprint & Profile. Before meeting for the session, I access the Hall of Records for your soul’s blueprint and profile. I do need some information to access your records, and an intention of what you would like to shift, change, and/or create in the next six months. This allows us to focus on what needs shifting, changing, and clearing to assist you in changing and creating what you desire over the next several months. I will gather the information and do the active Soul Blueprint & Profile Reading on my own time before our meeting. During our meeting, I share with you what I have discovered in your record. In this time, we may also do some energy work, meditation, coaching, mentoring as we do in an Energy Healing Session. You will be given exercises/practices to futher your personal clearing and ideas to make practical shifts that can assist you in creating the changes you want to see in your life.

My Certifications & Experience
I am a certified in the ThetaHealing® technique as a practitioner, and have been certified as an instructor. Courses I’ve completed:
- Basic DNA 2012 & 2017
- Advanced DNA 2013 & 2017
- Manifesting & Abundance 2013 & 2015
- Intuitive Anatomy 2014
- Basic DNA Instructors 2015
- Advanced DNA Instructors 2015
- Dig Deeper 2016
I began learning the ThetaHealing technique because I became very clear that to change my life experiences, I needed to shift my subconscious beliefs and programming. I started out for my own healing. It was in 2014, after completing Intuitive Anatomy that I felt competent, and a drive, to actually help others and began seriously practicing for the purpose of assisting others. I have experienced over 400 sessions equaling well over 800 hours of practice (with peers and clients, collectively) working remotely with people in Canada, Greece, England, Scotland, India, the U.S., Austria, Spain, South America, and more.
As of December 2019, I began studying Soul Realignment®. I am currently nearing the completion of certification, and will update this as soon as certification is complete.
